Weird Picks #75: Season 7 AP Sion Mid

Leave a Comment
 Ever since Sion's rework into a crowd control monster with massive initiation potential, AP Sion largely fell off the face of the earth and hasn't been seen in quite some time. However, earlier this month I had an opportunity to play with a Sion one-trick player, Schmanthony, and although I was skeptical, it does seem to work (if impractical).

Let's take a look into how the new AP Sion plays out:

Weird Picks #74: Windspeaker Lee Sin Support

Leave a Comment
 So I was watching my friends play some ranked the other day, where oddly enough, they were matched up against a D4 Lee Sin support (screenshot of games). I know what you're thinking and my thoughts were the same.

This guy got to D4 with Windspeaker Lee support? Why am I so BAD?!

Anyway, I can't really tell how good his win rate with Lee support by itself is since he also jungles Lee Sin sporting a cumulative 52% win rate rate. Meanwhile, whenever he plays Lee as a support, it looks like he's always paired with a Yasuo ADC. Again, wtf am I doing wrong right?

Regardless, since it does work I figured I'd pick a low hanging fruit this week for WPW and have a little chat about it.

Weird Picks #73: Malzahar Support

Leave a Comment
Support Malzahar is one of those things that in theory, was always possible as a result of his powerful ultimate. However, it wasn't until recently that he started gaining notoriety in the lane dominance meta. By pushing his lane early, the level 2 power spike advantage far exceeds any potential creeps he might steal along the way.

As a result of this and more, high division players (especially in Korea) are pouncing on this champion as a fun and powerful support pick.

Weird Picks #72: Rammus Mid

Leave a Comment
 With Riven, Yasuo, and Zed mains all over Summoner's Rift, going up against full AD teams is not uncommon. Playing against a good Yasuo mid can also be extremely annoying for the majority of mages. However, for a Rammus it's trivial, and although your team may question your sanity at champion select, they'll change their toon once you start running down the enemy team 1v5 behind two turrets and mauling them.

Weird Picks #71: Tank Annie (Mid)

Leave a Comment

Here's an interesting build I've seen a few times on the rift with surprisingly high effectiveness. This is generally the build taken by players who play for KDA, and try and get the highest possible (which mostly involves not dying). Check out the build below!

Weird Picks #70: Taric Top

Leave a Comment

A champion that's classically only played as a support, Taric does surprisingly well when the enemy team happens to pick all attack damage based champions with low health pools. By scaling both offensively and defensively through armor, he works surprisingly well against champions that like to all-in like Yasuo.

Weird Picks #69: AP Nasus Revisited

Leave a Comment

AP Nasus is by no means a new development, and as an ARAM champion he's always been on the sidelines. However, with the changes on Rylai's Crystal Scepter/Liandries in Patch 6.24, his core build can be completed faster than ever before.

This build was extremely popular last patch when it comes to AP Nasus games, and works extremely well in a variety of situations.

Weird Picks #68: Support Taliyah Guide

Leave a Comment

Taliyah saw a decent amount of play in every position except marksman on release. However, nowadays, she's been relegated to the mid-lane except for a few oddball Taliyah support mains. For some reason, she always sees a few thousand ranked games as support each patch, even at higher divisions. What does she bring to the table and why on Earth would anyone want to do it?
